I guess some of these new shows, not previously archived here or at Arrow (RIP), had been available at gdlive and the file sharing sites.

Perhaps I dont get out enough, because I hadnt heard this one before either...

Sadly the sound quality and pitch issues of this Sirmick AUD render it somewhat challenging to enjoy, but there is no mistaking this treasure for anything other than another monumental show from an incredible period on the bands history!

The setlist is fascinating, chock full of Pigpen during the wooden set, and the playing throughout is nothing short of amazing, especially the second set jam...

7/12/70 - Fillmore East

Dire Wolf, The Rub, How Long Blues, Dark Hollow, Friend Of The Devil, Candyman, Katie Mae, Bring Me My Shotgun > She's Mine, Rosalie McFall, Cocaine Blues, Wake Up Little Susie, Cumberland Blues

Easy Wind, Mama Tried, Cold Rain And Snow, Attics Of My Life, China Cat Sunflower > jam > I Know You Rider > High Time, It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World, Bobby Sells The Brooklyn Bridge, Cryptical Envelopment > Drums > The Other One > Me & My Uncle > The Other One > Dancin In The Streets, Turn On Your Lovelight > St. Stephen Jam > Lovelight E: Uncle John's Band

you all don't mess around when you mess around!

(thx for the heads up for July 12, 1970.)

I sorta discovered this gem of a '69 show the other day-

it's got an interesting, loose, early Dupree's Diamond Blues,
and Caution is out of control!

Right now, I'm hearin' that '70 show!

I wish these Fillmore East 1970 shows could become an official release or a Road Trips or whatever so they could be heard in decent audio quality. The set list is choice! Bring Me My Shotgun? How Long Blues? Cocaine Blues (Tell It To Me)? Rare songs that I wish could see an official release. The band came off the Canadian Train tour a week before and the band sounds inspired. I imagine these acoustic songs in the first set got a lot of play on the Canadian train ride. Thanks for the heads up on this one. Sound quality is rough, but the show is brilliant! Long live Pigpen!

This show has actually been around forever, but it's very uncommon due to the quality. (A lot of these old tapes, nobody ever bothered digitizing them.) When I first heard it, it immediately vaulted to one of my favorite '70 shows -- it's awesome. I wish the previous two nights sounded better as well -- I don't know if it's the Fillmore or the taper's fault, the Port Chester people did a much better job!

And by the way Cliff, I mentioned the 5-30-69 show here a few months ago when it first surfaced....a new discovery from the early years is always exciting! That segue into Dark Star is quite an unexpected trip, even for the band....
